Lanson ‘gold label’ 1996

89 points

I would have marked this higher but I feel that this bottle has aged slightly prematurely due probably to storage on warm retail shelves.  Though it still has racy acidity reflecting the Lanson non-malolactic house style.  It’s a very good wine, not too modern and concentrated, but plenty of flavour.  A very good bottle of vintage.
